This self-directed course provides a broad overview of U.S. immigration law. It is designed for anyone who wants to understand the immigration system, and does not assume that participants have any legal background. Each of the seven sections of the course covers a core topic in immigration law, including sources of immigration law, government agencies involved in administering immigration law, and how noncitizens gain and lose immigration status. By the end of the course, which takes about 90 minutes to complete, participants will have a solid grounding in immigration law fundamentals, including types of lawful immigration status and who qualifies for them; obstacles to gaining lawful status; eligibility for U.S. citizenship; and who is authorized to practice immigration law.
